Greg Piccolo and Bill Morrison
Former Roomful of Blues vocalist and saxman Greg Piccolo was born May 10, 1951 in Westerly, Rhode Island. At the age of 13 he was playing sax with a six-piece rock band, the Rejects. Two years later he joined Duke Robillard as a vocalist for the Variations, a British Invasion cover band. Piccolo rejoined Robillard in 1970 to create the first incarnation of Roomful of Blues, inspired by Buddy Johnson's R&B band.
